We are very excited to announce that we have released our new feature – Patient Reported Outcome Measures! Also known as PROMs, they are a great way to keep track of your patient’s progress with rehabilitation. Some of our subscribers had been testing it out for us ahead of the release. Here is what Heather, a hand therapy clinic owner in Perth has to say –
‘Sent to a patient, who sent it back within 24 hours! Awesome to have access like that…and saving lots of trees as well! Well done!’
We’ve made this feature as simple as possible for both you and your patient to get the most out of it. See below for our step-by-step instructions for completing, sending, and viewing patient outcome measures. You can also click to watch our instructional video.
1. Open your patient’s programTo use outcome measures you will need to create or open a patient program. We’ve aligned PROMs to your patient’s programs in the same way as the symptom tracking feature. Once you’ve opened a program, click on the ‘PROMs’ button as shown below.
2. Select a PROM questionnaire You can now select one of the outcome measures from the drop down box. At the bottom of the screen there is also a references section, where you can read more about the outcome measure you intend to use. If you need further guidance on which measures to use, click here to read our previous newsletter.
3. Complete or send to your patient
Once you’ve selected the outcome measure you want, you can either ‘Complete Now’, or send it to your patient via email by pressing ‘Request Completion’. If you choose to email it they will receive a secure smart link. Once they click it they can easily fill out the questionnaire on their computer or mobile phone.
Once your patient has completed it, you will receive an email notification. You can choose to switch these notifications on or off by going to Settings -> Email Settings and selecting the following drop down box.
As you can see, using TrackActive for all of your PROMs needs is as easy as 1, 2, 3. If you have any questions, please contact us.
